    I've had IBS all of my life, and it's always been very painful. I am very happy with Lactulose, now i have no pain, cramping, or hemorrhoids. I have not experienced any negative side affects at all, and my only issue is i have several bowel movements a day, but my doctor assures me this is fine.

    Been taking for 10 years now. Best taken before eating in AM with a cup of water. Taste not bad. can take in hot coffee if needed. I do have gas with it. but better then not going. I had colon resection and I can't blocked up. Some times you just need to adjust the dose if you get too loose.

    I also use this drug for HE due to liver disease. This drug has certainly help with having bowel movements, thus removing toxins better than I was. O.K. I do have a sense of taste, here's my answer to this. It was killen me. I add 1 tablespoon of Tart Cherry Juice to my 2 TBLSP of Lactulose. The tart helps even out the syrup, try it, you won't be sorry!

    Brilliant stuff. Senna and bisacodyl side effects were terrible for me so I was delighted to find that this works without causing me pain. There has been a side effect of being a bit more gassy but not uncomfortably so. Found 30mls twice a day worked, anything less didn't and I discovered from an IBS forum that is a common dosage. Very happy overall.
